Timeblocking productivity: book Deep Work by Cal Newport

Timeblocking - Wikipedia

Timeblocking or time blocking (also known as time chunking) is a productivity technique for personal time management where a period of time—typically a day or week—is divided into smaller segments or blocks for specific tasks or to-dos. It integrates the function of a calendar with that of a to-do list. It is a kind of scheduling.

When done properly, timeblocking can help eliminate distractions and discourage unproductive multitasking

One of the early adopters of timeblocking was Benjamin Franklin ===>>>

Timeboxing is one of several time management strategies to help you take back control of your schedule. Instead of losing hours to easy tasks, timeboxing can help you fight procrastination, reclaim lost productivity, and focus on the work that matters. With timeboxing, you’ll practice assigning each task a specific amount of time, so you can spend less time planning work and more time in flow.

Timeboxing - Wikipedia

timeboxing allocates a fixed and maximum unit of time to an activity, called a timebox, within which planned activity takes place. It is used by agile principles-based project management approaches and for personal time management.

Cal Newport's Deep Work Time Blocking Method –

In his book, Deep Work, he explains his key to daily productivity: schedule out every minute of your day. This may sound extreme, but he argues it’s the best way to keep yourself focused on “deep work” and fight off the temptation to engage in shallow tasks (like email and social media). And it’s easier than you think. He calls it “Time Blocking”
